DECORAH, Iowa – A man who got a fractured skull in a fight has now been sentenced to probation and a fine.

Authorities say Jacob Donald Pambin, 31 of Le Roy, MN, and Jordan Hunter Nelson, 26 of West Union, got into a confrontation in March 2017 at Lake Meyer, south of Calmar. Pambin wound up with a small skull fracture after Nelson hit him in the head with a bat.
